It was a great experience for all of us, and definitely one of the neighborhood gems in the great Princeton area. I wish they had more food choices on menu (such as pizza and grills...) and some more seafood options (mussels...), and wish they increase the portion of each serving. Also hope to see a pre-fix menu option for dinners....Also it would be helpful if they come less to our table to ask about how we are doing.

My husband and I drove from Albany, NY to NJ to celebrate my father's 85th birthday - I had chosen Eno Terra for lunch, based on other very positive reviews on the Web. From what I had read about Eno Terra, I gained an appreciation for their commitment to sourcing ingredients locally, and their desire to minimize their impact on the environmental - both of which are important to me.But, equally important is creativity (presentation), proper preparation (food cooked accordingly), ambiance and service - all of which were top notch. I highly recommend Eno Terra - whether it be for a business lunch or very special occasion (note that I have very high expectations, having attended Johnson & Wales University, College of Culinary Arts).

Eno Terra remains my favorite Princeton restaurant, just beating out both Elements (a bit fussy) and Peacock Inn (a bit formal in a slightly flashy, Real Housewives way). Just the right combinations of ingredients handled the right way. I want to give it five stars for food, but I can't quite, as occasionally some dishes just barely miss the mark--not bad, mind you, but not yet perfected either.

The service was attentive and the food delicious. I picked Eno Terra because they pride themselves on using food from local farms and we were very pleased with the results. We told them it was our anniversary and they gave us a beautifully plated, scrumptious dessert.

Weekend brunch/lunch isn't the extraordinary bargain that weekday lunch is, but it's very good all the same. Service is attentive, food well-prepared, excellent wine, not too noisy, and a nice feel to the place altogether. Not cheap but not unreasonable for the quality of the food, surroundings and service.

Wonderful restaurant, especially for special occasions and fine dining. Relaxed atmosphere, great food. Loved the fresh and local food choices, and especially appreciated the gluten free options. Great place for well-behaved children, although not strictly a children's place. Staff was wonderful and accommodating to our grandchildren.

Much was made of the green sustainabilty of the restaurant. Conceptually, nice thought. They grow much of their own produce. Food was not particularly good- very average. Had the steak special- grass fed beef. Very tough $36 steak. Was told that the grass fed beef yields a less fatty cut of meat- more muscle. Whatever, but the toughest steak ever. Broccoli rabe was small portioned, and I frankly do it better at home. Clearly, a meal I could surpass in my kitchen and saved $186. Grilled asparagus- except for the grill char, tasteless. Disappointing anniversary meal. Go green...somewhere else.

This was our 4th viist with friends and is one of our favorite places. True to form the menu featured spring specialities like asparagus. I had the asparagus soup finished with mascarpone and the hubbie had grilled asparagus salad with portobello mushrooms and greens. Our friend had clams which was a huge bowl in a fabulous sauce that was so good we had to ask for more bread so we could sop it up! Her hubbie had the chorizo. For entrees we had the pork chop, the grouper special with green lentils and swiss chard and the ricotta gnocchi special. All were heavenly. For dessert I had the strawberry-rhubarb crumble ( delicious but a little pricey at $12), the chocolate carmel tarte, the cheese plate and the trio of Bent spoon ice creams.

Eno Terra is an oasis in an area north of Princeton that has few quality restaurants. I'm a lunch customer, but I've had the gamut, from the salumi and cheese to the daily special lunch to an excessive and epicurean couple of hours. Though the restaurant fills up, the meal isn't rushed.

We went for dinner on a Monday for a promotion they were having on wine(twenty bottles under $20) and found there was also a family style dinner for $19. Always the freshest salads and perfectly cooked fish, but the cheesecake was my favorite!

We attended after a graduation with a larger family group of 6. We were seated promptly and attended to at just the right level throughout the evening. Even though they did not have a kids menu, my 11 and 14 year old easily found dishes they could order and thoroughly enjoyed them. The waiter was friendly and helpful. When the food was taking a bit longer then expected, the waiter brought over a plate of prosciutto for the table to make the wait easier. We loved the use of locally grown produce and the freshness of the food.

Great food. Went on a busy Saturday night. Service seemed overwhelmed. Waited a long time for food, and didn't get much attention. The staff seemed to be working hard, so my guess is that they didn't have enough staff to accommodate the crowd.

The food and wine were fabulous. Our waiter offered us a Spanish red wine that was not on the wine list and he came back with a sample for us to try. It was a lovely wine with a smooth finish. We had marinated mushrooms as an appetizer and they were incredible. For our entrees, we had the Alaskan sockeye salmon and locally raised pork chops, both of which were served hot and prepared perfectly. The accompanying locally grown vegetables were paired well with the fish and meat. For dessert, we shared a delicious strawberry rhubarb cobbler, which was a nice treat to finish the meal. All of the wait staff (Jamie, Ashley and Carlos) were friendly and made it a pleasant dining experience. I look forward to coming again one day soon.

The food, service and ambience at Eno Terra all contribute to a wonderful dining experience. We were seated upstairs which was quieter, despite a few large parties. There are many options for sharing from the variety of menu offerings. We enjoyed the grilled fresh asparagus salad and grilled clams to start. Our entrees of local strip steak (from Simply Grazin') and grilled wild Salmon were cooked to order and well presented. A fresh rhubarb-strawberry cobbler for dessert capped off a wonderful meal. Our server Daniel was attentive and helpful in guiding our wine selection.

Eno Terra serves wonderful, fresh, delicious food. The gluten free Italian pasta was unspeakably good. The service was perky. The pacing between courses was slow but the house must be aware of this since we were given dessert on the house. My only complaint is that despite a reservation they tried an seat us in the bar rather the main room. This is a recurrent problem in all restaurants when two women show up "alone." I'm really tired of this, I'm as presentable as the next diner and I tip well. Time for the restaurant industry to enter the 21st century.

This is a lovely restaurant situated beside a picturesque canal. The service is outstanding from the friendly valet parking staff to the waitstaff who go out of their way to ensure that you want for nothing. The meals are made with the freshest ingredients, many straight from the restaurant's farm. Foodies and wine enthusiasts will love Eno Terra.

Ordinarily a terrific restaurant. They had a lot of people in early and service suffered. It took 20 minutes or more for a waiter to approach us and nearly an hour before the salad came. The pasta was overcooked and not especially tasty, though the fish was fine.

Eno Terra is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food was great as usual and the service was good. We sat at a table in the bar area, which was nice and not very noisy. Fresh salad and very good cheese sampler as appetizer. We had the pork chop as main course, which was wonderfully cooked and very tasty. We had the tempranillo wine they had as special that night and that was OK.

We were celebrating a 40th Reunion at Princeton, and wanted to get together with a few friends to start the weekend off right. Eno Terra did basically everything right: tasty food, prompt and very helpful service, and a pleasant atmosphere. The host/owner (Franco) brought my wife and I a complementary glass of prosecco as we waited for our three guests -- because we had never been there before! He explained the focus on organic and local food, which helped us in our menu selections. Our waiter was very helpful yet understated, giving us our "head" and letting us set the pace of the evening, yet supporting us at every step of the way. Every course was delicious classic Italian (as in Italy, not in NJ). We left 4 hours later, happy.

We were greeted in a friendly way. It was my first time at this restaurant and we were taking my sister out for her birthday. The entire experience was delightful. My sister adored the restaurant. We were treated to a surprise in honor of her birthday. The food was fantastic. We ordered the first course taster to share and it was delicious. Our waiter was charming and knowledgable. After dinner we walked over to the river and relaxed in the moonlight. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Leave the kids home!
